With my new Vivosmart HR, I report data to Garmin Connect. Garmin Connect has assigned me to two challenges and I signed up for one in the Official SparkPeople Garmin Team. My first weeks have gone well. I had over 181,000 steps last week, putting me second in one challenge and first in the other two. I ran over 25 miles last week.
Garmin Connect also has "Insights" where you can compare to others. It reported that I ran more than 99% of women my age who reported to Garmin Connect last week. Here's the chart:
It awarded me badges, too:
I enjoyed every step. When I first started SparkPeople I found the trophies very motivating. Not sure I need them now, but still, it is kind of fun!!
I did have a really good active week and am looking forward to my target 5K race on Saturday!
Oh, and I should say my weight was the lowest this morning that it has been in 10 months. Good! I'm still 3 pounds over what I weighed when I ran my fastest race in 2013. Just might get back there. We'll see. Delighted to be 10 days from my 8-years-of-maintenance anniversary and back to over 84 pounds gone!
